    Excellent Destination Wedding Venue!

    We had a wonderful wedding at the Glen House. They have a magnificent view of the White Mountains which can be seen through the floor to ceiling windows at their lobby. There's also a lovely fireplace in the lobby which served as the primary backdrop during our ceremony.

    Aside from the magnificent views, the Glen House also had such flexible and considerate employees! They went above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful day!! We were able to have a hybrid wedding (virtual + face to face) through their help and everything went smoothly and on time. Would definitely recommend this hotel!

    Amazing Beautiful and Memorable Day

    I truly enjoyed our day at The Glen House! Courtney was amazing in helping me plan our wedding event, it was a very small and intimate ceremony but we were acomadated as if it were the gala of the year! Our rooms were very clean, even our pets were treated like royalty with doggy dishes and a plush dog bed in our room. The meal was delicious with great choices to accomadate even the fussiest eater. Thank you to all the staff for a job well done!
